On July 19, 1967, a
small but dedicated group of believers held their first worship service in the
“Upper Room” on the second floor of a business in the South Hills Shopping
Center on South Land Park Drive. The Reverend Walter Link served as the
organizing pastor. A formal steering committee was elected, a choir organized,
and education and fellowship programs began. Twenty-nine months later, the
Sacramento Presbytery voted to organize Faith Presbyterian Church.
Land at 625 Florin
Road was purchased by the Sacramento Presbytery in 1965, and by 1980 the
congregation’s first building was completed, the site of our current campus. See

While the leadership of Faith has changed over the years, the mission has remained the same. We are committed to becoming “a community loving Jesus, building disciples, and serving all. Christ is at the center of all we do and are. By God’s grace, we strive to become his disciples, living our lives that we might reflect him. He calls us, in turn, to serve those around us, both in our own neighborhoods and in far-away corners of the world where the need is great.
